Virtual Workshop: Paint the Landscape in AcrylicOctober 3, 2021 @ 12:00 pm | HOSTED BY: National Nordic Museum
12:00 pm | Cost: $30 – $40
The exhibit Among Forests and Lakes: Landscape Masterpieces from the Finnish National Gallery provides a range of artistic responses to the breathtaking beauty of Finland.
The landscape is full of astounding beauty and inspires us to respond with our own artistic expression!
Whether or not you have ever picked up a brush before, you will enjoy the experience of looking carefully at the landscape then creating your own, unique acrylic painting. You will learn how think about the landscape, simplify what you see and plan your work before you even begin painting! Then you will learn color-mixing and techniques with your brushes to create various elements in the landscape such as clouds, trees, mountains, water and more!
We will take a lesson from Finnish artists Lea Ignatius and H. Ahtela (Einar Reuter) who used simplification to convey the aesthetic impact the landscape had on them.
During this online class you will be guided in painting a landscape from a photo reference. You may follow along using the same reference Kathleen will use in class – or use your own photo.
Kathleen Moore is a teaching artist who teaches drawing and painting in oils, acrylics, graphite, and silverpoint. Moore delights in encouraging people relax and enjoy the creative process.
